Spanish Moss Trail

closed at mile 5

October, 2021 by dsmtrdtuner

10/9/21 Trail was closed near mile 5. Could see a truck and bulldozer. First time riding this trail and had no prewarning that it was closed. Will try it again one day.

Spanish Moss Trail

Lovely Trail

August, 2021 by kingdome

I rode this trail 11 May 2021 on my Catrike. At that time there was no construction on the trail itself although it appeared that there may have been some minor work being done on one of the trailhead parking areas on the southern end. The trail is absolutely delightful. Super smooth, the trail is a full 12 feet wide with a nice center lane marking for the full length of the trail. The only bump on the entire trail was in the bottom of an underpass where there was a length of grating to allow drainage. They could have done a better job of matching the heights on that!
I was staying at a B&B on Bay Street about a mile from the Depot so that is where I got on the trail, by biking from my home away from home. Hitting the trail I headed north until I ran out of trail, then reversed course until I ran out of trail on the southern end, then reversed again back to my starting point at the Depot. By the time I got back to the B&B my GPS told me I had gone just over 25 miles., I didn’t see many military jets while on the trail but I certainly heard them. The trail goes quite close to Merrit Field, a Marine Corps Air Station, and they are quite active.

JF Gregory Park Trail

Memorial Day Trail Ride ¿

June, 2021 by gset9afnue

Beautiful trail ride today. Got to hear memorial Tap at The front entrance of the park. Shaded canopy ride around the whole trail.

Wonders' Way

Best Ride in Charleston

May, 2021 by normanbowers

Trail is on the south side of the bridge well separated from traffic with a low concrete wall. The views of Charleston and the harbor are well worth the gradual climb to the center of the bridge. Safe parking and modern restrooms are available at the Mount Pleasant Visitors Center in the park at the east end of the bridge. You can extend the ride by riding the sidewalk and streets south to the South Carolina Aquarium and Ft. Sumter visitors center, just stay with the streets closest to the harbor to minimize traffic.

McQueen's Island Trail

is it open yet?

May, 2021 by harrison62

Does anyone know if the trail is completed at this point?

Spanish Moss Trail

Great ride

April, 2021 by julie222

This trail is a must when in Beaufort SC. It’s wide and paved and scenic.

Savannah & Ogeechee Canal Trail

Beautiful place

April, 2021 by 8gbmxnkwh5

Used to come here as a kid. Still the same great place. It can be a little busy sometimes, but there’s enough space. $5 entry for adults.

New River Linear Trail

nice little walk

April, 2021 by aryannamwalker

Fun little walking trail that we like to take our pup on. We like going to the right towards the river at the end. I just wish it wasn’t so straight however I realize it’s an old railroad track.

New River Linear Trail

Not bad

April, 2021 by 8gbmxnkwh5

The mulched path from the parking lot to the “trail” is definitely the nicest part. Too bad it’s so short. The “trail” is really just a service road for some power lines. The power lines stretch the entire length, which isn’t terrible but it isn’t ideal. You’re essentially walking through people’s back yards for some of the trail and it even runs across the street of a neighborhood. But get into the marsh area towards the end and it’s quite nice. There’s even a little roofed bench out there to sit at for a while if you’d like. You’re not very likely to run across anyone else out there.

West Ashley Bikeway

We loved the natural part of this trail. Saw great wildlife and had a wonderful time. Need the trail start more easy to find...may be a google issue, but it's hard find where to start.

Savannah & Ogeechee Canal Trail

The path starts off with numerous tree roots. Big ones you can see but lots more under the leaves. Very bumpy ride. Better for hiking.
